DOJ refuses to rebut Trump's wiretap claim

NY Times:

F.B.I. Chief Urges Justice Dept. to Reject Wiretap Claim

  • James B. Comey, the director of the F.B.I., asked the Justice Department to publicly reject President Trump’s claim that former President Barack Obama ordered his phones to be tapped. It has not.
  • A public rebuttal would be a remarkable rebuke of a sitting president, underscoring the high stakes of accusing the former president of a conspiracy to undermine Mr. Trump’s administration.
There is little doubt in the minds of many that the Obama administration holdovers have been engaged in a conspiracy to sabotage the Trump administration with illegal leaks of classified material.  If the media is to be believed, some of this material came from wiretaps.  DOJ's refusal looks more like a rebuke of the Obama denials and those of the media.
